  • Comments Off on Zenith 2014 – exclusive pictures of first novelties and interview with CEO Jean-Frederic Dufour

Zenith 2014 again takes off with its El Primero chronograph caliber and its Elite automatic caliber. But as Jean-Fred Dufour told me it will be a calmer year.

Honestly who would have Zenith expected performing so strong after those crazy years with the former CEO Thierry Nataf. Since Jean-Fred Dufour took over Zenith five years ago the manufacture finally found back to its roots. Zenith was always producing high quality watches for fair prices and this is what Jean-Fred will now continue to do.

I invite you to listen to my interview with the Zenith-CEO and to directly hear from him what is going to be next, why this year will be calmer and telling me that he will also in the future keep the prices of his watches fair and moderate.
